We already saw the reveal of Picollo and Krillin for Dragon Ball FighterZ recently, but this new information comes from Bandai Namco Europe. They essentially give details on the new characters and the online battle system. The details are as follows:
Piccolo is considered to be one of the most technical characters with his expandable arm to grab his opponents. He has various ways to break the opponent’s guard and he can also fire fast and powerful beams. Players can charge up for a stronger attack by long-pressing the button. To create a huge blow, Piccolo can use his ability to release Ki blast from a range. For an effective strike, players will can even connect it with a combo move!
Krilin doesn’t have that much reach and power but easily compensate with several different techniques such as the Kamehameha to fight a long-range game. He also has tricky skill to confuse the opponent by leaving an image of himself before turning into an attack. Furthermore, players will gain extra by using the famous Senzu Bean. Fans will be delighted to know that his signature and unblockable attack is also included in DRAGON BALL FighterZ.
In the Online Battles of DRAGON BALL FighterZ, players can fight and interact with other users in the FighterZ lobby. That’s the perfect place to rise up to the arena stage and get matched with other users who are willing to battle! Players can also communicate with Z-Stamp, use facial expressions from DRAGON BALL characters and watch their match with the replay mode!
Most of this doesn’t look at that different from those magazine scans from before, but it’s still pretty exciting that the gap between Japan and the west getting this information is getting increasingly shorter, most likely due to the DBZ brand’s popularity. Look out for Dragon Ball FighterZ on 2018 for PS4, Xbox One and PC. Enjoy the screenshots below.
